My engine light is on, my speedometer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't register, some times it bounces back and forth.


code p 500 refers to vehicle speed sensor (VSS) --circuit malfunction====causes ---wiring---VSS sensor---ECM
the engine light reports serious faults with both the engine and the transmission
I would go to an accredited auto transmission shop and have the VSS replaced or checked
The VSS drives the speedo, cruise control,gear changes ( reports to the transmission control module (TCM)

U try to set cruise it dont come on also speedometer dont work


Fix the speedometer cable or VSS (vehicle speed sensor) circuit before diagnosing the cruise.

The cruise control is a separate system that uses speedometer information to adjust the throttle up or down depending on the speed detected.

Also, the actuator cable for the cruise control could be broken.

But, I would check the speedometer problem out first.

My speedometer stopped working. i have already


I'm not sure with that type of vehicle, but on my 91 S10 my speedometer did not work at all also. The problem with that was the sensor that plugged into my tranny was missing so it was not reading anything. If you have a sensor that goes into the tranny it may be bad or missing so in my opinoin i would try checking that.

Speedometer acting erratic on 99 chevy cavalier


Check the VVS (vehical velocity sensor) "speed sensor", The vss controls shifting and cruise control as well as speedometer. If the Cavalier shift's fine and cruise control work, the it's going to be a good chance that the speedometer n the instrument panel may have a bad connection or the stepper motor needs to be replaced. Get a service book and attempted to check for voltage going to speedo cluster( at dash), to determine if your stepper motor is bad and replace the motor or the whole instrument panel.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Broken speedometer on 1997 ford explorer


does your cruise control work? If not, check the wiring from the VSS to the speedo cluster. Check VSS connector closely for pin pudhout or corrosion

Sometimes, the VSS siganl is converted by the instrument cluster and sent to the PCM and speedo.

Check engine light on?


Speedometer
The electronic speedometer (17255) receives a speed signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) (9E731). This sensor is also used to sense vehicle speed for the engine management system and to regulate the cruise control when equipped.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vehicle Speed Sensor The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) (Figure 53) is a variable reluctance or Hall-effect type sensor that generates a waveform with a frequency that is proportional to the speed of the vehicle. If the vehicle is moving at a relatively low velocity, the sensor produces a signal with a low frequency. As the vehicle velocity increases, the sensor generates a signal with a higher frequency. The PCM uses the frequency signal generated by the VSS (and other inputs) to control such parameters as fuel injection, ignition control, transmission/transaxle shift scheduling and torque converter clutch scheduling.

Replaced TH700R4 on 1988 c/k1500.now cruise control and speedometer do not work.tested vss & wiring from vss to cruise control module and from ccm to powertrain control module.both check good. Repair...


I would look at the wiring around the bellhousing first to be sure you have not pinched any wires. On that truck, behind the glove box is the PCM, and another white colored box called a DRAC. The DRAC controls the speedometer not the PCM. Look into replacing it. Also check your trans and gauge fuses. Good Luck.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX sedan and the speedometer just stopped working. My mechanic just put in a transmission that he bought from a junk yard. How do i fix this problem?


I have a 99 accord and my speedometer and odometer did not work. The problem was the VSS vehicle speed sensor. The VSS is located on the transmission. Once I replaced it everything worked fine.
